Including members from The Fleshies, Lower Forty-Eight, BottIes & Skulls and Victim's Family, Triclops! has released its first full-length album on Alternative Tentacles, entitled Out of Africa. I thought there might be some implicit comment on Isaak Dinesen's classic novel, but after listening I can't be quite sure. If the reference is there, it's layered in the pound for pound sonic boom and San Francisco punk infusion that makes up their compositional prog/metal-ish sound. Described as "Jane's Addiction jamming with Primus," it is a sound you must hear to believe.
You can hear Triclops! tonight at their free instore at Amoeba San Francisco! Click here for details.
Anyway, back to the record: at first listen you might not notice the intricacies of sound; spanning from volatile to formal to dynamic explorations, Triclops! offer you a cross section of ever-sprawling musical genres such as Experimental, Metal, Punk and modern Prog. When it's all said and done, Triclops! make you feel like a party to whatever is happening on the Dali meets Disney cover painting by Lee Harvey Roswell.
